Five Minutes With Our Local City Councillor – Jonathan Sri

By Sandy Taylor

Hi everyone,

I’m the local city councillor for the Gabba Ward, which covers the seven suburbs of Brisbane’s inner-south side.

The Kurilpa Peninsula is a vibrant and diverse neighbourhood and there’s always a lot going on. West End is a particularly noisy suburb, where you’ll often hear parties and live music late into the evenings. It’s also a place where rich and poor live in close proximity, so if you hold any kind of prejudice against marginalised and homeless people hanging out in public spaces, you should probably think about living somewhere else. As our area grows and changes, I’m working to ensure we can make room for new neighbours without losing the unique character and subcultures that make the 4101 postcode so special.

Over the next few months, the council will be finalising plans for park upgrades to Davies Park and Riverside Drive. The next stage of work for the installation of traffic lights at the intersection of Vulture St and Montague Rd will also be getting underway. I’ll be keeping residents updated on these projects via email and social media.

If you’re keen to get more involved in the community, I encourage you to reach out to groups like West End Community Association and Kurilpa Futures, as well as community hubs like West End Community House and Turnstyle.

If you’re looking for some local entertainment that’s a bit under-the-radar, I recommend checking out spaces like Outer Space Gallery and The Sideshow (both along Montague Rd), the Bearded Lady (Boundary St) and the Baby Grand (Russell Street).

For regular local updates, you can follow my Facebook page at www.facebook.com/jonno.sri and sign up for emails via www.jonathansri.com/keepupdated.

See you around!

Jonathan Sri

Councillor for the Gabba Ward
